Yes, 2010 marks the 20th anniversary of MacRo, Ltd.
The real estate market landscape in the mid-Maryland region has changed on many fronts since 1990—economic, regulatory, developmental, conservation and political. Yet in many ways Frederick and its surrounding counties are still very much the same. We continue to be a thriving link to the Washington/Baltimore metro region, even as we work our way out of the current recessionary trough.
For MacRo, Ltd., our goal has always been to keep our fingers on the pulse of the marketplace, keeping our customers and clients informed of circumstances that impact real estate. For 16 of the last 20 years, we have published and distributed the MacRo Report on a semi-annual basis. I hope that you find this one as informative as those in the past.
While the MacRo Report took a bit of a respite over the last several months, MacRo, Ltd. has continued to actively service our clients’ properties in the areas of sales, leasing, consulting and property management. Yes, some of our clients have experienced a tough change in the world of land development, but we have continued to push some terrific projects through the challenging regulatory pipelines. You will see the fruits of our labor featured in this issue.
We are embracing how the Digital Age has positively impacted the real estate industry by overhauling our website (MacRoltd) with an integrated Internet presence, including an online version of the MacRo Report. Here you will get updates on real estate news and property offerings on a regular basis. We are also joining the blogosphere with our own MacRo Report Blog, focusing on current land and commercial real estate news and issues, and providing contributions from influential people within our region. In addition you are invited to connect with us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. So please, join in!
You’ll also find our properties all over the web via CoStar.com, Loopnet.com, FarmsAndLand.com, and nearly 40 other Internet real estate search engines.
With every market there are challenges that in some circumstances seem insurmountable, but as they say, “We live in exciting times” and our goal remains to assist you, our valued customers and clients, in achieving your real estate goals.
Thank you for all your support over the last 20 years!
